What is the diffrence between softball and baseball?

Well, for starters, softball uses a larger ball. You are also not allowed to "steal" bases in slowpitch-softball, but you can in fastpitch softball. Baseball pitchers throw overhand while all softball pitchers pitch underhand. Softball bats' barrels are also slightly larger. The first base in softball is a double-base so the first basemen and the batter don't interfere with each other whereas in baseball there is only a single base. The balls used in baseball, slowpitch and fastpitch are all different. Baseball uses the smallest ball, slowpitch uses 11" balls and fastpitch uses 12" balls.

Is softball harder than baseball?

Softball is probably harder. Despite the name, a softball is harder than a baseball, and heavier (therefore harder to hit very far). Because of this, the batter must run to the base quicker as the ball will be closer. Plus, in fastpitch softball, the pitches can be as fast (or faster)than baseball pitches.


Where did fastpitch softball start?

The problem is that fastpitch softball is a derivative of slowpitch softball. Slowpitch has a place; however, the entire reason for throwing underarm was to make it a more leisurely game. Someone then decided to alllow girls to hurl it underarm at high speeds. It is a fundamentally flawed sport due to the imbalance between pitcher and batter. There is really no reason for it to exist other than the sexism that has kept girls from playing baseball.
